Yes, the doyen of travel presenters.  Long before foreign travel became so popular he whetted our appetite to see the world.  R.I.P.

The broadcaster Alan Whicker has died at the age of 87 after suffering from bronchial pneumonia.
The presenter and reporter - whose career spanned almost 60 years - passed away in the early hours of Friday, his spokeswoman said.
Whicker, who was probably best known for his Whicker's World TV series, died at home in Jersey.
The star - who had been with partner Valerie Kleeman for more than 40 years - regularly presented Whicker's World, which famously brought a glimpse of the exotic jet set lifestyles of the rich and famous into UK homes, for a little over three decades.
In 2009, he returned to some of the locations and people who featured over the years for a BBC series, Alan Whicker's Journey Of A Lifetime.
